  1. Hi, I've had my promedia 2.1 for two and a half years now and today when I was plugging stuff in around my subwoofer I heard a loud pop come from inside it. Now the light on the speaker is completely dead, I've tried multiple outlets to no avail, and it makes me confident in thinking that a fuse has blown within the subwoofer. I would repair it if there weren't so many conflicting guides online on how to do so (plus I have the newer system and I don't have a soldering gun). So rather than buying an entirely new promedia 2.1 subwoofer (which can be $60-$80) I'm wondering if there's any other subwoofers that are compatible with the connections my speakers have that I could buy as a replacement. I'm not a audiophile so I would have no idea where to even look for something like that, and it's hard to find a direct answer when you're looking at forums from 2010 that are definitely outdated. I really don't wanna switch from these speakers, I've absolutely loved them since I first got them and I'd like to continue using them for more years to come Thank you!
  2. Hi all, I have a pair of Synergy series F-30 Klipsh tower speakers, coupled with a Klipsh SW-112 (12" powered sub-woofer). They're all connected to my Onkyo TX-8050 Receiver. https://intl.onkyo-av.com/tx-8050 The speakers all sound great still, but the Onkyo's volume control knob is not working anymore, so we can only control the volume from the Onkyo remote. Also, sometimes the left channel disappears and I have to power-cycle the Onkyo to get it all to work again. We've had the Onkyo receiver, and Klipsch speakers almost 10 years now. (it's not the wiring, 'cause I double checked that and all is secure and tight). Anyway, I have a two-part questions below; 1./ Regarding my Klipsch (powered) subwoofer, I noticed even when everything is turned off, that the (powered) subwoofer still uses ~3.5 Watts from the wall.? Is this normal, or the fact that it is a "powered" subwoofer it will stay on waiting for a signal. ? 2./ any recommendations for a new'ish receiver.? - Marantz NR1200 (75W/ch@6ohms) - Dennon DRA-800H or 900H (100W/ch@8ohms) - ... ? The must have for us is that the receiver: -must have a built-in USB input dac, (for connecting flash-drive or 1-TB portable storage) so as to play all our mp3 and flac, wav, files, ... 96khz/24bit, and 192khz/24bit, and DSD, ... AND it must have the ability to play them in a random/shuffle format as well. Also, it must be able to play shuffle/random files controlled from the Remote and/or Receiver, and NOT need a TV connected to it. -must have subwoofer (pre-out). Having HDMI maybe a bonus feature, but we're not interested in having the TV on while listening to music, old-school I guess. I'm not interested in any 5.1/7.1/... avr surround sound systems, since all of our 5.1 audio files have been converted/mixed down to 2.1(Stereo). However, some friends have said that I could just get a good quality AVR Receiver, and just use it in Stereo mode, which is fine as long as it can deliver the power cleanly to my Klipsch's.

  5. Im not sure which cables connect to which ports on the circuitboard. can anyone help me out with this? Images below. I have two cables coming from the transformer. not sure which cable goes on which clip, dont want to fry the board. Thanks
  6. Greetings, I would like to get a little bit more detail as how does this translate to the overall power from this Subwoofer. The Amp behind this Subwoofer says it's only 80W but the overall Soundbar and Subwoofer power together is 800W as indicated by Klipsch. How is this power distributed exactly, does this Subwoofer really has only 80W maximum or there's more wattage/power that goes beyond that which isn't disclosed? Pardon my level of experience with subwoofer and amps, I made this thread because I would like to understand how does this work and if this 80W amp is enough to make this Subwoofer get comfortably loud without damaging or overheating if the owner desires. .

    Excellent condition. Original box. Amplifier, both active and passive driver, grill, and cabinet are in excellent, like new condition. The volume knob is not fluid, but it works. It most likely needs to be cleaned, or you could replace the pot for a couple-o-dollars. This really isn’t an issue because it can be turned all the way up and the levels will be adjusted in your receiver/processor/preamp. I just wanted to disclose the only issue this sub has. Gently used in my office, which turned into a child’s bedroom, hence the sale. Buy with confidence as everything I sell I would feel comfortable buying myself. Garage audition welcomed upon time of purchase to verify that everything works correctly and as stated. Local sale preferred. Basic shipping in original box, add $95 (Wow has shipping increased!) and I'll cover paypal fees. If you want a double box with tons of extra padding, we can have that conversation when you're ready to buy. (Shipping only to forum members that have been around for at least a bit.) I'm located Southwest burbs of Chicago 60511
  10. I have a 5.0 setup with Khorns for the L/R mains, a R-34C for the center and RF7’s for the surrounds (will be replacing these with LaScalas). I keep reading that a dedicated subwoofer for the LFE channel would help on movies, even with the Khorns. I’m looking at the SPL-120 & SPL-150. I’m thinking the 150 would match up better with the Khorns. What do you experts think?
  11. Hello All, I am looking to match a Subwoofer to my tube amp, ideally I'd like to stay with Klipsch as this feels right alongside my Heresy II's. I think I have a problem, I have an Icon Audio ST40 MK2 tube amp which only has speaker connects and no sub connection. Is there a way round this with Klipsch subwoofers, if so how do I do this and what is the theory with it ? I have a very small music room, it's not optimal in sound but does me so I do not need a huge sub. Just something to improve the Heresy II lack of sub bass. Help, thoughts and recommendations would be most welcome. Happy Monday all x Tom
  12. I just set up my Klipsch speaker system I got from Walmart and although both my left and right speakers work fine, my subwoofer is not working. I have tried reseating the 9 pin serial connection and trying different power outlets as well as ensuring the subwoofer's knob is turned up where it needs to be. I have also tried to see if maybe using the AUX input would show any different results but this has sadly resulted in nothing as well. Does anyone have any suggestions on what's up?
  13. I currently own the R-41 PM and would like to know what’s the difference between these two subwoofers, which is ideal for me and what should I be thinking about when picking either one of these subwoofers. I listen to them in a small room and use USB audio. Currently I only use them for music but in the future may want to have the option of using this 2ch setup and subwoofer for movies. I’m also open to other Brand’s if they are better suited. thanks in advance. Cheers Yash
  14. I have a older Klipsch RW-12ii. Fifteen years and still working fine. Problem is the past two nights the subwoofer has activated in the middle of the night and sounded like a huge white noise or gurgling sound. Woke me up immediately. Ran to the stereo system and everything was fine except the subwoofer was "sounding" off. I unplugged it, waited, and plugged it back it and the sound stopped. Everything I check in the system is fine, no problems. The next night the same thing happened, only at a different time. What I'd like to know is, can an outside (electrical or radio RF) signal could trip the auto-on feature??? (Or anything else someone could think of to cause this?) The subwoofer and all of the stereo is plugged into a surge protector. Nothing else was activated but the subwoofer. Weird! Has this happened to anyone else?

  16. In a predicament, warranty vs great deal. I have found a SPL120 subwoofer for sale for $300 locally. He has all packaging, but apparently damage occurred during shipping (has two corner dings) and he used for two weeks while waiting for his new one. The other option is getting a brand new R-12SW from Costco locally for $250 and it will have full warranty along with costco match. I've heard mixed reviews on the reliability of klipsch subwoofer amps and am curious if anyone else has had issues with them. Is it worth the difference in performance to roll the dice on this sub from offerup? Thanks,
  17. So a co-worker tricked me into entering to money pit that is high end audio equipment a couple months ago, and unfortunately I'm getting hungrier and hungrier for upgrades everyday. It all started with him selling me his Heresy III's (he built himself some amazing La Scala clones) and I started slow on the equipment. I grabbed a decent turntable (Pro-ject debut carbon EVO) as vinyl was my main focus initially, and then settled for an Emotiva TA-100 to put it all together. Within a week I had ordered an Emotiva 8" subwoofer to help fill out the low end, but it's not exactly filling the void as I'd hoped. I've spiraled uncontrollably since then, and now the set up has removed the TA-100 for a Schiit Mani and a PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Integrated. I just added a Bluesound Node 2i for Tidal streaming, and now I feel like the sub is a real weak link. The Heresy III's sound amazing solo, but without a sub I feel like I'm definitely missing something on the low end, but the Emotiva sub - though warm in tone and surprisingly fast- just doesn't fill the void properly. Does anyone have experience with similar equipment that has a good recommendation for a fitting sub? I'd prefer to not spend more than about $500 if possible - but if there's a specific sub that you know would fit this system perfectly I'd be open to any recommendations. I'd really prefer to find the right sub to balance everything out so I could start focusing on actually listening to the music and quit focusing on what else I need. Also, all RCA's are from Mogami and the speaker wires are Audioquest Rocket 44's Thanks in advance, -Dom Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO -> Schiit Mani / Bluesound Node 2i -> PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Integrated -> Klipsch Heresy III's
  18. This is a vintage cabinet for a Klipsch Rebel corner subwoofer. I purchased it with the intent to rebuild it, but lost time and momentum. To be functional it will need a 15" driver as well as an amp to drive it (I have a new plate amp that I'd be willing to add for $75). Pick up in the northern Virginia/DC area.
  19. I have a Denon X1400h Dolby Atmos receiver and and I have paired Klipsch R-820F floor standing speakers with it. Since Klipsch speakers are efficient I did not set up a preamp with it. It's a very basic setup and I'm looking for recommendations for a central Channel and a subwoofer to go with this system
  20. is there a way to create a piezocrystal subwoofer that can hit 1hz or lower?
  21. Hello I'm new to the forum and happy to be a part of it! I have a pair of Klipsch KW-120 THX subwoofers without the amp. Is it worth buying the amp or should I sell them and buy a powered Sub. I currently have a Pb4000 pro and the THX ultra 2 series as my front stage. Anyone have experience with the THX subs? Or can I run them with another type amplifier? I may be interested in selling them if the price is right. Im in the Tampa bay area in Florida. Please let me know what you think.
  22. I currently have a pair of Cherry Khorns driven by an Audio Nirvana 300b tube amplifier designed by David Dicks of Commonsense Audio. I was apprehensive about purchasing this amp due to reading comments about the design and assembly characteristics described by a plethora of audio enthusiasts in a negative light but the common thread that was described was that their reviews were based solely on the design and components and not a physical audio experience. Every review I read by someone who had actually heard this amplifier indicated a premium audio experience and for me, that came at a cost of just under $2000. I recieved a letter from David Dicks stating that this was the last AN-300b to be sold as "New" due to their weight and his increasing age. Well, I am very pleased with the results however, I'm just getting started with my system and I'm looking to add on. Starting with a subwoofer(s) that will pair well with my Khorns. I am new to the audiophile world so I have been all over the place with ignorance and questions alike but I've been reading feverishly to try and reign in my thoughts and present "realistic" questions but I'll leave that to you to decide. First, a breakdown of my rooms and intended use. I am currently remodeling and preparing a theater room in my current house. The dimensions are 11'6"W × 15'10L × 7'10"H. I also have another house that I plan to remodel and move into in a few years where I intend to have a theater room in the basement with a much larger space and there are patio doors that can open up for out entertainment so I don't mind preparing equipment now. The Khorns sound great but I want to add to the low frequency for heart thumbing bass with music as well as theater surround as the system grows. I have seen a few recommendations but I understand enough to know that I don't know $#!@ about how this works in terms of pairing these speakers to account for delays as well as any other issues that I might be completely unaware of. I understand that the Khorns produce sound down to 20hz but it's insufficient for my taste, especially with such loud and clear highs. I also understand that these speakers are highly efficient as well as high quality and I fear that a sub-par subwoofer would take away from their performance. So I am considering either the THX-1200-SW subwoofer with the KA-1000-THX amplifier or possibly moving up to the KPT-684-SW with dual 18" drivers. If went this route I was considering a Behringer EP4000 with twice the wattage as the KA-1000-THX for a quarter the price. Here are a few questions that I have. If I purchased the THX-1200-SW and later decided to add a second one, would I also need a second amplifier? If I went with the KPT-684-SW would this present any other issues considering it's a commercial subwoofer? Another question I have is for my current stereo setup, I am using only the integrated two channel tube amplifier and is does not have an LFE output. Can I safely connect either of the above mentioned amplifiers and subs to the high output connections in conjunction with the Khorns?
  23. ITEM SOLD. Thanks. Sub is available--I'll get around to listing it sometime. $725 IS FOR SOURCE SPEAKERS ONLY. GROTTO SUB IS $350. LOCAL PICKUP 19380 ONLY. Or, you can pay and arrange for U-Ship or other shipping. Condition is 9/10. As a second owner, I never have rated anything over 8/10; but these are in such perfect condition I will break my rule. Pet-free, kid free, smoke free, dust free home. The tilt-able bases allow the vertical angle to be set for seated or standing listeners. A very cool idea and can be used with or without the original spikes. Martin Logan CLS2 Source. Hybrid stats with cone woofers that integrate quite nicely with panels. Always kept covered. Vacuumed with a Kirby G4 ('nuff said) horsehair brush very carefully, LIGHTLY and gently several times per year, although they did not need it because I have electrostatic air filters on furnace/AC system and due to allergies always use filtered air in the house year round. I do not think you will ever find a nicer pair than these Martin Logan Source CLS electrostatic hybrid speakers in this ad! I will be sad to see them go, but I have not used them in a year. They have been sock-stored in my living room, displaced by Merlin VSM-M speakers I picked up locally. They are ready to be picked up at the front door. My 15W Cyrus Brenneman Stereo-15 EL84 amplifier drove them fabulously in a 13' X 18' X 8' living room open to dining room. So much so, that I did not feel I needed the Grotto subwoofer, in fact, guests at first did not believe the powerful lows coming from the Source were WITHOUT the subwoofer on. But, if you take time and attention, the Grotto will blend in just marvelously and seamlessly. For Rap/RnB/HH music, a sub is almost always helpful, of course, and a large room will benefit from the Grotto or any tight musical sub. Please see pictures at Audioasylum or Audiomart. Thanks. Grotto is available separately for $350 and I can do a deal if someone buys both--picked up at front door. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649631749-martin-logan-source-speakers-immaculate-condition-grotto-subwoofer-optional/ Unless you are OCD, these speakers are flawless. They were always kept covered by me and the first owner--in fact--we both babied these. The platform they come with is unique in that by just twisting the panels 180 degrees around, you can raise the tilt 15 degrees for parties with standing guests, or leave them level. Ingenious design. I read that Martin Logan put significant engineering effort into the panel and bass integration and the new CLS2 bracing that is now on all their speakers. These have tremendous gal appeal. Available for front door pickup in West Chester, PA 19380. They fit easily in a 4 dr sedan like a Honda Accord or Acura TL. Comes with ALL accessories all in EXCELLENT condition. Rating them 8/10 as I am the second owner. You will not be disappointed; what you get is what is described, always. Thank you. Martin Logan Grotto subwoofer is excellent condition is available separately at $350. Rating this 7/10 because it has some slight smudges not noticeable from a distance. It is quite in nice shape--and c'mon, it's a sub that sits in a corner. This got hardly used. My significant other loved these speakers, but low frequencies make her tense! I have voluminous ++Feedback at all the usual suspect sites under this same name: NuRxHunter What you will pick up at front door: 1 PAIR Martin Logan Source CLS2 pair of speakers AND ALL ORIGINAL ACCESSORIES, including: 1 Tilt Platform 8 ML Spikes 2 Energizing adapters 2 ML Sock covers 2 User Manuals Everything looks as new SPECIFICATIONS Frequency Response 42–22,000 Hz ±3dB Recommended Amplifier Power 20‒400 watts per channel Horizontal Dispersion 30° Vertical Dispersion 28" (71cm) line source Sensitivity 90 dB/2.83 volts/meter Impedance 5 Ohms, 1.6 @ 20kHz.

  24. G'DAY Klipsch I can't find the connection instructions for the Klipsch 40 subwoofer unit to the soundbar or a link to these instructions. The connection of these two units are a crucial part of my sound bar set up so I'm finding this extremely frustrating. I'm not very techy so could you please help me. Thanks for your help,,,,,,,,,,,,,,from Frosty
  25. Hi all, First owner of TWO SVS SB-16 Ultra's, purchased directly from SVS. $1,100 each, or $2,000 for both. Both are piano gloss finish and in excellent condition. Great subs - perfect for music and great for home theater as well. I've been running these with my RF-7 III's (also for sale), and they sound great together. One sub has all original packaging. The other has MOST of its original packaging - missing a couple of the foam inserts. Shipping is available - would be open to splitting costs within reason. We can discuss. Local pickup also available - I'm located in NJ just outside of Atlantic City. Everything for sale right now. If you'd like to get both subs and the RF-7 III's, I could knock off another $200: SVS SB-16 Ultra's: $1,100 each or $2,000 for the pair. (Piano Gloss) RF-7 III's: $2,000/pair (Walnut) RF-83's: $500/pair (Black) *Due to COVID-19, I cannot offer an in home audition at this time. All equipment is in perfect working order and excellent cosmetic condition. Someone mentioned being unable to direct message me yesterday. If you run into issues or don't hear back, leave a comment on this thread. Pictures below.
